He also has conceptualised and initiated POSI+IVE for Sun International, the largest Pan African collaboration of art, fashion and music; an event which aims at raising money for HIV/AIDS causes.

2006 heralded the start of his personal initiative; called ‚POSI+IVE‚ www.positivecollection.co.za to raise funds for HIV/AIDS infected children. Targeted, specifically, at children who have contracted HIV/AIDS due to sexual abuse. He launched this project in collaboration with British artist Craig Kilford with the intent to raise awareness of HIV/AIDS through the combined efforts of artists, fashion designers and the performing arts.
